Selecting the Right Motorhome Hire for Your Holiday 2016


Traveling in a motorhome for your holiday provides the perfect opportunity for your family to enjoy the great outdoors together. It also offers a convenient way to travel and it allows you to pack many of your personal comforts from home along on your trip. However, not all motorhomes in the UK are alike and every family has its own unique traveling needs. Below is a look at several things you should consider when selecting the right motorhome to hire for your holiday.




Sleeping Capacity

The most important thing is to make sure you select a motorhome that will accommodate everyone traveling with you. Some motorhomes include three or four berths, while other vehicles have more than six or seven berths. Always, double check how many people can sleep comfortably in the motorhome before hiring one.

Size of Motorhome

The size of the motorhome is also very important because you will be the one driving it to your destination. While motorhomes for the most part are easy to drive, you also want to stick with a vehicle that you are comfortable driving. It is also very important that you take note of the height of the motorhome, because you may need this information if you will be driving under a bridge or overpass.


Not all motorhomes include a private bathroom. However, many campgrounds do offer public restrooms, including showers, for their guests to use. Whether to choose a motorhome that has a shower room or not is a personal decision you and your family should make when selecting the right motorhome.

Cooking Capabilities

Most motorhomes have some type of cooking capabilities, but the size and functionality of the cooking area varies greatly. If you do not plan to do a lot of cooking on your trip or you expect to do more campfire cooking than indoor cooking, a smaller kitchen would be fine. If, on the other hand, you expect to do a lot of your cooking inside the motorhome, a larger kitchen will make cooking easier and more efficient. Be sure to take a look at the cooking appliances available and the size of the refrigerator when choosing a motorhome hire.


All motorhomes have a good amount of storage. However, if you plan to take a lot of extra things, or specialty items, such as a kayak or bicycles, you want to make sure there is enough room on the motorhome to store everything. Take note of all the closet and cabinet spaces, as well as storage underneath the motorhome, to make sure it is adequate. You can also request a motorhome that has a bike rack to make it easier to bring these along on your trip.


While camping will offer plenty of outdoor activities to do, you also want to make sure that there is plenty to do inside the motorhome. Some motorhomes come with a TV and a DVD player. This will allow you to bring some movies along with you on your trip and enjoy free entertainment whenever you want it.

It is recommended that you tour several motorhomes before deciding which one is right for your holiday trip. It is best to hire your motorhome from a reputable company, like “MotorHomes UK”.
